Colitis from reactivation of established CMV colonization can complicate the clinical course in patients with an acute flare of ulcerative colitis (UC). Accurate and timely detection of ac...
This study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of tofacitinib (CP-690,550) in patients with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis who have failed or be intolerant to one of fol...
The primary objective is to assess if discontinuation of anti- tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF) treatment in ulcerative colitis patients in sustained clinical remission, with the option t...
The UCRPT is a randomized controlled trial to determine if a type of hypnotherapy will maintain remission in patients affected by Ulcerative Colitis.
The metabolic response to ulcerative colitis, including increased proteolysis and lipolysis and changes in energy expenditure, plays a significant role in the resulting malnutrition from w...
IV ciclosporin therapy is effective in steroid-refractory ulcerative colitis. The optimal drug level to achieve response and minimize complications during induction therapy is not known.
Oral drug delivery is the most attractive pathway for ulcerative colitis (UC) therapy, since it has many advantages. However, this strategy has encountered many challenges, including the instability o...
Current treatments for pediatric ulcerative colitis (UC) are limited. We evaluated the pharmacokinetics and clinical benefits of subcutaneous golimumab, an anti-tumor necrosis factor agent, in moderat...
We aimed to identify the risk factors associated with colonic cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in ulcerative colitis (UC) and to compare the clinical course between antiviral therapy-treated and -untre...
Adalimumab is the second tumour necrosis factor antagonist (anti-TNF) adopted for the treatment of ulcerative colitis. Clinical data from naïve patients are scarce.
Chronic, non-specific inflammation of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Etiology may be genetic or environmental. This term includes CROHN DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
Inflammation of the COLON that is predominantly confined to the MUCOSA. Its major symptoms include DIARRHEA, rectal BLEEDING, the passage of MUCUS, and ABDOMINAL PAIN.
An acute form of MEGACOLON, severe pathological dilatation of the COLON. It is associated with clinical conditions such as ULCERATIVE COLITIS; CROHN DISEASE; AMEBIC DYSENTERY; or CLOSTRIDIUM ENTEROCOLITIS.
A humanized monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to TNF-ALPHA and blocks its interaction with endogenous TNF RECEPTORS to modulate INFLAMMATION. It is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS; CROHN'S DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
A surgical procedure involving the excision of the COLON and RECTUM and the formation of an ILEOANAL RESERVOIR (pouch). In patients with intestinal diseases, such as ulcerative colitis, this procedure avoids the need for an OSTOMY by allowing for transanal defecation.
